The FIA held its General Assembly in Paris, France, today, bringing to a close its annual series of meetings of Sport and Mobility FIA Member Clubs from around the world. The week’s activities will culminate in this evening’s FIA Prize Giving Gala at the world famous musée du Louvre at which the winners of the Federation’s sporting championships will be honoured.
Opening the Assembly, FIA President Jean Todt highlighted the way in which the Federation is growing on a global scale, with interest from new member clubs, and a push to improve diversity in sport.
The Federation’s ongoing efforts to improve grassroots access to motorsport have been boosted by the CrossCar programme, while the Girls on Track initiative is creating new racing fans and finding untapped female talent.
On a global level, the FIA’s member clubs have joined the Federation’s world championships to work towards a planet-friendly future for sport and mobility alike, with a focus on electric racing, greener fuels, and Smart Cities developed with all road users in mind.
During today’s Annual General Assembly meeting, the following decisions were taken:
Amendments to the FIA Statutes
FIA Formula One World Championship – Implementation of 2021 Financial Regulations
The 2021 Formula One Financial Regulations require, for their full implementation, that the FIA Statutes be amended.
Consequently, the Assembly approved a number of amendments to the FIA Statutes relating to the creation of a Cost Cap Adjudication Panel (CCAP), that would be competent in the first instance in all disciplinary matters relating to the FIA Formula One Financial Regulations, within the structure of the FIA and to the election by the General Assembly of the members of the CCAP. Candidates will be proposed by the FIA Sport Members entitled to vote and by any group of five competitors of the FIA Formula One World Championship.
